Celebrating Strawberry Month

Before our trip to Taiwan, we have made a batch of homemade strawberry jam for our family and friends. There are times we are wondering on how to enjoy them than just having them on our toast? This time we decided to use them on our waffles instead.

We have brought the ready-made waffles but there are some days I would like to have a waffles machine to make some fresh one instead. Anyway, if you are not a waffles lover, you can replace them with pancakes too.

This month there are plenty of different berries in our local market, therefore, you don’t have to worry about choosing what fruits to use for this.

Some little fun facts; Apples are great, but strawberries will also keep the doctor away. They are rich in vitamin C, flavonoids, potassium, fibre, folic acid, and folate, which is quite a nutritional hodgepodge. Incorporating strawberries into a healthy diet may help:

  • Reduce the risk of stroke and cancer (antioxidants)
  • Prevent heart disease and lower inflammation (flavonoids)
  • Regulate blood pressure (potassium)
  • Stabilize blood sugar in diabetics (low glycemic index)

That’s a pretty powerful fruit! Strawberries are also cholesterol free, low in fat and sodium, and contain no artificial preservatives or colours. They are perfect for everyone, even people following gluten-free, kosher, or vegan diets.

Happy Strawberry Month!
xoxo, Joe
